The Whole Economy of the Snohomish Basin: The Essential Economics of Ecosystem Services

This report presents an economic analysis of the Snohomish Basin economy to illuminate the critical links between natural capital and our economy’s health and resilience. Natural capital, such as a forest or a wetland, ensures a flow of local food and freshwater supply, flood protection and a host of other services without which the economy would be crippled. For example, most of the flood protection benefits within the Snohomish Basin are provided by natural systems such as upland forests and floodplains. Floodplains also provide a suite of ecosystem services including salmon nursery, water quality improvements, agricultural food production and recreation.
